This story was the inspiration for the fashion shoot I did for DANSK magazine (see my last blogpost) according to Robert Rydberg. He also told me that it has inspired many photographers and stylists the last 40 years. I did not know but of course it makes sense that beautiful creative expressions from the past inspires the future. SO I`m reposting! I have to do this again! Love this series with Sarah Moon for Harpers Queen early 70s. It was her first ever story for a magasine and it was such an important one. Her and I had already done some jobs together by then but just one or two so when she asked me to model this story I was thrilled. I Always loved to work with Sarah. Her poetry, her very special atmosphere and poetic being, working almost in total silence, an aura of deep meditative stillness in the room with an edge of intensive creativity. She had this apartment painted in gold for this shoot. It belonged to friends of her, overlooking the Jardin de Luxembourg in Paris. They kept the gold. Thank you Sarah this will always stay in my memory as one of the most precious jobs ever. The contact with the young boy was part of the magic. Since it was so intimate it also needed to be held within deep boundaries. Creating a fairytale movie. in between shoots we were just playful and ordinary, talking, laughing, eating…a good day at work. Unforgettable!
